Lion offers an outstanding portfolio of Australian beers. Iconic trademarks like XXXX, Boags and Tooheys partner with newer, innovative takes on the category like Little Creatures, Hahn Super Dry and James Squire.
Born in the Sunshine State back in 1878, today the XXXX trademark can boast not only over 135 years of brewing excellence but also Australia’s number 1 beer in XXXX GOLD. Brewed at 3.5%, XXXX GOLD is the easy drinking beer that’s big on taste, and we think best matched with big blue skies, sun-drenched days, good chats and great mates! This year also marks the 90th birthday of XXXX Bitter – first brewed back in 1924 by William ‘Bill’ Leitner and today known as a big-hearted, full flavoured lager that stands tall and proud for Queensland quality. XXXX Summer Bright Lager rounds out the portfolio; a refreshing full strength, low carb beer that always looks on the bright side.
Established by the Toohey brothers in 1869, Tooheys has balanced respect for heritage with an appetite for innovation for more than 150 years. The Tooheys portfolio now includes the classic, easy-drinking Australian lager Tooheys New and robustly flavoured but refreshing Tooheys Old, along with the clean, crisp taste of Tooheys Extra Dry.
Inspired by tales of legendary Australian outdoorsmen, IRON JACK is the story of a man who embraces the freedom and challenge of this hot, rugged country. He built his reputation on his conquests in the wild and by spinning a good yarn over a cold beer, while sharing a generous feast of his day’s catch. IRON JACK is brewed with our hot, rugged climate in mind. Give it a whiff and you’ll pick up a little bit of hop aroma – give it a gulp and you’ll see the bitterness has been kept low so you get maximum refreshment, to crush your thirst.
Born in Geelong and brewed using 100% Victorian hops & malt, Furphy is a clean and crisp, balanced beer with subtle fruit flavours and aromas. Deep gold in colour and slightly hazy, there’s a soft maltiness throughout, which leads to a pleasantly refreshing, dry finish.
The Hahn Brewers have developed a range of quality beers to be enjoyed by modern Australians. Using the finest quality, natural ingredients, combined with the very latest in brewing technology, our beers are brewed for superior taste and quality.
James Boag understood that there’s nothing on earth quite like Tasmania’s natural purity. Which means there are no other beers quite like James Boag’s.
